New AFI scholarship fund honors Tony Scott

Family aims to 'help encourage and engage future generations'

The family of Tony Scott has created a scholarship fund at the American Film Institute to honor the filmmaker’s life and work.

In announcing the scholarship fund on Monday, the family requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Tony Scott Scholarship Fund “to help encourage and engage future generations of filmmakers.”

Scott died Aug. 19 at age 68 in an apparent suicide. His directing credits include “Top Gun,” “Crimson Tide,” “Man on Fire,” “Domino” and his 2009 remake of “The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3.”

Contributions to the Tony Scott Scholarship Fund may be sent to American Film Institute, Tony Scott Scholarship Fund, 2021 North Western Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90027.
